Sir Knight John Bacheldor passing

Sad News from the Holy Spirit Assembly:

Hello fellow Holy Spirit Assembly Knights

It is with great sadness that I announce our dear friend, colleague, and fellow Sir Knight John Bacheldor passed away earlier this morning. Today is the 10 week anniversary of John's car accident.

We will send funeral information when plans become finalized. The viewing will be at Schrader Funeral Home, funeral at Ascension Church, and burial will be Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery.

The family has asked to have our Knights Honor Guard participate.

In addition to John, please continue to pray for his wife Pat who will be returning home (hospice) from St Luke's Hospital.

Thank you.
